I have been looking for a couple of years for a way to display these wonderful Thomas Kincade Christmas jingle bells but hadn’t found one yet. Then last night I was working on stamp room organization and came across this card tree that Stampin’ Up! demos were able to buy a few years ago at convention. It is perfect for my ornaments! There were exactly enough hooks for the number of ornaments I have collected. After Christmas I can put the ornaments away and use it again to display cards.
This was one tiny benefit of being a demonstrator. The biggest benefit is owning my own business and being able to control how much I work, how much profit I make, and setting my own hours. Some of the side benefits are having fun while working and the relationships I build through my business. You
You, too, can reap these benefits for yourself as a member of my team of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. Now is the perfect time to get started. Call me, email me, or go here to learn more about the opportunity. I look forward to working with you to make and meet your goals.
Stamps – Close as a Memory (retired)
Inks – Rose Red and Always Artichoke Stampin’ Writers, Soft Suede stamp pad
Paper – Whisper White and Soft Sky card stock
Other – Labels Collection Framelits (125598), Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder (130917)
My heart goes out to those who are going through this holiday season saddened by the loss of a dear family member. I have a good friend and customer whose husband just died this Sunday and needed to make her a sympathy card. I pulled out the retired stamp set, Close as a Memory for this card because I love the verse that is for the inside of a card.
Need a gift for a crafty friend or relative but don’t know what they already have? Here’s your solution! Order a gift certificate from me. You choose the value of the certificate and they get the fun of choosing what product or class they want. Email me if you want to buy one.
Have someone you wish would give you a gift certificate to spend on stamping supplies or classes with me? Email me their name and contact information and I’ll contact them for you. I also have a wish list program going. You fill out a list of about 6 things from the Stampin’ Up! catalog you would love to get for Christmas and write the names of the people you would like me to send your wish list to. Send the list back to me and I’ll contact those people for you. Contact me if you would like a wish list.

Happy Thanksgiving! I am so grateful for all my readers and customers. May you be having a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. For those of you who are missing loved ones, may your memories help carry you through the day.
I wanted to be able to tear the edge of the designer series paper so I added a photo box and stretched it to fit the size of the card. Then I dragged the Wonderfall Designer Series Paper design 5 into the photo box. By double clicking on the photo box, the option to tear the edges comes up in the list of options. Click on that then click on the side you want to tear. If you don’t like that shape, click on the side again which removes the tear. Then click again and you will get a different tear. Repeat this process until you find one you like. You can also adjust the width of the piece you tear off. I left mine at the default width.
Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends and readers. May this season of Hanukkah be filled with joy, love, and peace for you and your family.

Love my leaning tower? When the packers took apart my wire cubes, they separated the connectors from the cubes. Who knows in what box still packed they might be in! So I improvised with zip ties. After spending the best part of a day constructing my storage tower, I was really proud of my work. Then I started putting things in it! Oh my…I know this won’t work. Today we went to Lowes and purchased a tall cabinet with doors and 5 shelves. That will be much better! The middle of my stamp room is finally empty of boxes but there is stuff stacked all around the perimeter still. Once we get the cabinet put together, I’ll work on stashing my stash. At least I was able to get to my desk yesterday to stamp 15 tags for the Creative Stamping Friends Christmas ABC tag swap.
Don’t forget to check my blog post next Tuesday for the details of my Balck Friday/Cyber Monday special!
